From the bookLeft to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza a Ruandan Tutsi who was hidden by a Pastor in his bathroom with 6 other women during the genocide in 1994.
" It was much more crowded than usual in the bathroom that night. As I cradled sweet seven-year-old Sanda in my lap while she fell asleep, I thought about how each one of us in that little room had been torn away from our families, or had had our families torn from us. I stroked Sanda's hair and wished that my own mother could have been there to cradle me. I drifted off to sleep shortly before dawn and had the most intense dream of my life.
I saw Jesus standing in front of me, his arms outstretched as though he were about to embrace me. He was wearing a piece of cloth wrapped about his waist, and his long hair spilled down around his shoulders. ...Yet his eyes sparkled like stars when he looked at me, and his voice was as soft as a gentle breeze.
'When you leave this room, you will find that almost everyone you know and love is dead and gone,' he said. 'I am here to tell you not to fear. You will not be alone--I will be with you. I will be your family. Be at peace and trust in me, for I will always be at your side. Don't mourn too long for your family, Immaculee. They are with me now, and they have joy.' I awoke relaxed and happy. (p.110 - 111). ... I'd been praying continually for weeks, and my relationship with God was deeper than I'd ever imagined possible. I felt like the daughter of the kindest, most powerful king the world had ever known. I surrendered my thoughts to God every day when I retreated to that special place in my heart to communicate with Him. That place was like a little slice of heaven, where my heart spoke to His Holy spirit and His spirit spoke to my heart. He assured me that while I lived in His spirit, I'd never be abandoned, never be alone, and never be harmed. "(p.106)

Experiment #47 of Astonish Yourself! 101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life by Roger-Pol Droit
" Weep at the Cinema". - The film must be the right kind--unintellectual, easy to follow, and predictable. A love story, nothing else will do. Sit a bit too close, so as not to miss a moment, melt into the screen, forget everything. Believe that everything you see is true and noble. Utterly sad and utterly beautiful. ...Rid yourself systematically of all resistance and disbelief. .. And when the lovers part, when the heroine dies, when murder, evil or stupidity triumph, when dreams are shattered and hearts broken, when the violins surge in a minor key and the drums resound, just CRY. With Large, warm tears. Without thinking and without being ashamed. Hotly, intensely, interminably. Feeling despair and comfort at the same time, carried away by the story, incapable of the slightest resistance, ravaged by grief, happy to be able to weep, and to think of nothing else. Without ulterior motive--just for pleasure. Flaunting this orgy of apparently innocent tears conceals a particular pleasure, that of letting go, of barriers temporarily lowered. p.101 -102
*NOTE : I must add to this my own experience of a performance of "Cats" from the Broadway cast in Honolulu some 10 years past. The final song "All Alone in the Moonlight" and a small scrawny cat was singing with such volume and emotion that there was not a dry eye anywhere in the house. Men of 65 + years wept heartily into their hankies as much as their wives. Yet I felt the singer's vibration in my heart chakra as a sort of curiosity, almost an invasion as I observed it without getting emotional. I felt what was happening as her heart sending out a frequency that was deliberately opening my heart to cause me to weep. And for a few seconds I became the observer of this phenomena, amazed that one small singer could create such a huge catharsis for so many people. Suddenly I began a deep heaving rolling belly laugh that shook my entire body from bottom to top. I could not control it. I was above it, Godlike, watching this tiny woman affect thousands of people with her deeply penetrating voice and heart. I remember thinking, "This is how God has fun!" And the rolling heaves of laughter got greater and out of my control.
I have seen certain people laugh this way; one was the Dalai Lama when someone asked him "Where do the 4 Billion people on the earth come from?" The two others were my teacher, Muktananda, and his successor, Gurumayi, and the other was Gangaji and her teacher, H.L. Poonja (Poonjaji).
If someone had seen my laughter in this dire dramatic moment, I might have looked totally mad, but I think they were much too involved in the moment to care about me. It was really comforting to know that I could rise above mass events and retain a connection to the higher truth, but a bigger treasure to find out what that kind of laughter is like.. it is God's laughter.

"The Mystery of the Mind" by Swami Muktananda
"When Universal Consciousness, Chiti, descends from its lofty status as pure Consciousness and assumes the form of different objects, it becomes chitta, the individual consciousness, or mind, by contracting itself in accordance with the objects perceived." So the mind is nothing but Consciousness in a contracted form....It is just as if a sophisticated and well-dressed person were walking down a road and fell into a sewer. His clean clothes would become filthy, but beneath the dirt, he would be the same person as before. In the same way, when the Universal Consciousness becomes the mind, even in its contracted form it retains its nature of Consciousness." p. 28

EFT - The amazing tapping technique that cures just about anything! Information about workshops for learning EFT are at http://www.lotus-blessings.com/EFT.html
These workshops give you tools for healing pain, cravings and fears, but they work just as well on prosperity issues and life skills problems. As Gary Craig, the founder, says, "Try it on everything!" The biggest problem with EFT is the belief factor. People just do not believe they are cured, so they make up other reasons why they suddenly have no more symptoms. This just proves the power of EFT. Aloha and Blessings.

Wisdom in 13?
Every 13 days, a trecena, of the Mayan calendar, if you elect to subscribe, you will see a newsletter in your mailbox. The Mayan calendar, the Tzolkin, according to various interpretations, is based upon the beginning of the universe and the solar system's relationship to the Milky Way Galaxy which in turn is spiraling around a "central sun" with which we are soon to align. This 13 day cycle will align you with the Mayan calendar, creating a link to the great event of 2012 when many cycles come to an end, and we take a big leap up the spiral. How that will manifest is unclear, but the acceleration of consciousness is happening now as the Tzolkin predicts. We are in for interesting times and adopting the 13, my lucky number, is one way I hope to harmonize with this event.
*Note: The date for this Newsletter is Monday, 4th December ... or 5 Chuwen 4 Mak
Chuen,: "Innocence, spontaneity, inner child, humor, artistry, monkey,triskster, disruption, transparency." (from "The Mayan Oracle" by Ariel Spilsbury and Michael Bryner)
